“There are some secular trends in the industry which are immutable; they will happen regardless of whether certain people are there or not.”
“If Bill Gates and Steve Jobs weren’t there, these things would have taken a lot longer to converge because you would have ended up with lots of fragmented solutions which would compete among themselves and there would be inefficiency.”
